If you don’t like what you see in the world around you.  Obtain an education; not just in school, college, or university but in the workplace of ideas, interaction, and communication of shared experiences.  

I have a Master of Arts degree however everyday I learn something new.  I convey this important message to all the younger scholars and/or global thinkers out there who are disillusioned by our current process.  

I participated in a Study Aboard program in Tuebingen, Germany 🇩🇪. I traveled around Europe during my year long stay there.  I also had the honor of visiting the Philippines 🇵🇭. 

We may still be the country that everyone looks up to however we can strive to be better Americans and be more inclusive of our fellow  global citizens.  

It seems like light years since I had the privilege of walking down dirt and cobblestone streets, through island provinces and country villages, and speaking with students and villagers with the same shared interests for humanity and compassion for others. 

We need to get back to the basics.  Our national backbone is dependent on the strength and resolve of our fellow world community.  Only if we come together and share openly our ideas for partnership and cooperation will we become the people God destined us to be. 

We are better than this.  We are better than the dirt we were made from and which we walk upon.  We are created beings of shared ideas; life-giving energy from a Universe of endless possibilities.  

Why on earth should we settle for less than our ultimate best.  We are better than the dung left behind by the beasts around us.  We are capable of greatness but only if we burn the hate within and ignite the fire of our passion to thrive as we teach others to love one another; no matter politics, religion, creed, sex, orientation, or economics. 

Together we can achieve greatness, together we can change the world.  But it starts with you, as you light that fire 🔥 within and watch it spread all around you.

Feel free to share or add your own story to the mix as we do our part to change the world around us-one global citizen at a time. 


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
